Description

A real-life pioneer for women in science, psychiatrist Frieda Fromm-Reichmann escaped Germany in 1935 and began her innovative work at Chestnut Lodge Sanatorium in Rockville, MD.   Decades later, the (fictional) psychotherapist Eliza Kline and her son Nick live in the same custom-built cottage where Frieda lived and died.  Ellen Prentiss Campbell returns to Oasis to share the story of her latest novel, Frieda’s Song – where she weaves the lives of these two different women, separated by time and space yet linked in unfolding, compelling, very human, and eventually unexpected ways.  You’ll learn about this historical and contemporary-themed tale, as well as the author’s process of researching local history as a basis for writing a novel.
